You will love this fresh Irish Soda Bread recipe. It’s fresh, delicious, and easy to prepare!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3 Tbsp. butter
- 1/2 cup raisins or dried currants
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a small cookie sheet.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter with a fork (or with your fingers) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in raisins and buttermilk until the dough is evenly moistened.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly-floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Shape into a 6-inch ball, place on a cookie sheet. With a sharp knife, cut a 1/4-inch deep cross on top of the dough.
- Bake 30-40 minutes, or until dough is just cooked through and the top is a light golden brown.
To save a step, you can also begin making the dough in a food processor. Just be sure to stir in the raisins and buttermilk by hand.
